Hartz Luster Bath Allergic Reaction

My strictly indoor cats recently got fleas. I went to Wal-Mart to find something to offer relief until I got to my vet, and bougth Hartz Luster Bath. I used this product on my 1 year old cat, Jane (named after my deceased grandmother) as directed…Just rub in, wipe off. No bathing, no dipping. 2 hours later she started wheezing, sneezing and coughing. She wouldn’t look when calling her name, nothing. I tried to wipe it off with a damp wash rag and that offered no relief. I got online, and to me UTTER HORROR found all of these stories about Hartz flea medicine gone wrong. I immediately put her in the tub and thouroghly washed that POISON OFF. It is 12 hours later and she is breathing normally again. Thank God. The irony… this happened on the 5th anniversary of my grandma’s (for whom she was named after) passing. AND THE FLEAS ARE STILL ALIVE AND KICKING!!! I have placed posters at my local laundromat and supermarket warning pet owners of the dangers that this product and all Hartz products pose. More people need to be aware of this.

  1. I used Hartz Luster Bath on my cat and it worked great. It killed off the fleas, but it did give my cat diarrhea, because of the poison.
